But it turns out delivering Easter eggs is hard work. And it doesn’t leave much time for naps (of which Cat has taken five–no, seven). So when a pooped-out Easter Bunny shows up, and with a treat for Cat, what will Cat do? His surprise solution will be stylish, smart, and even–yes–kind.

The Easter Egg by Jan Brett
Jan Brett’s lovable bunny hero, Hoppi, and her remarkable Easter Rabbit will enchant readers as they pore over illustrations filled with dazzling eggs made by Flora Bunny, Aunt Sassyfrass and others. If Hoppi can make the best Easter egg, he will get to help the Easter Rabbit deliver the eggs on Easter morning. But it is not so easy. Discouraged, he goes into the woods to think when a blue robin’s egg tumbles out of its nest. Hoppi keeps it safe and warm until the baby bird hatches, and when the Easter Rabbit arrives, he chooses the empty blue eggshell to reward Hoppi for his kindness. Spring is everywhere in gorgeous illustrations framed with pussy willows, flowering vines and flowers. Side borders feature busy rabbits making their unusual eggs and, in a border above, the Robin’s family drama unfolds. A gatefold surprise reveals the Easter Rabbit

The Great Easter Egg Hunt by Melinda Rumbaugh
The Great Easter Egg Hunt is finally here! The Veggies are so excited and can’t wait to see what is inside their eggs. Petunia wants an egg with something sparkly and pretty, Laura and Junior are hoping for candy, and Larry is searching for silliness, as usual.
When the hunt is done, Junior is the only one who hasn’t found what he’d hoped for — his egg is empty! But as Bob explains, that is the best egg of all, for it represents the empty tomb and Jesus’ Resurrection on Easter. Children will love this fun book with the true meaning of Easter woven throughout — and they will love pushing the button to hear the classic song, ‘Christ the Lord Is Risen Today,’ sung by their VeggieTales favorites! Ages 2-5.
